VIDEO PRODUCTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS
* Our general terms and conditions
i) Video-specific, client-requested and approved extras will not be included in the Package price, for example additional stock graphics/footage and additional music tracks, which will be charged according to cost. If the client requests new video features requiring additional edit work or design between quoting and final delivery of the video, these changes or feature additions will be charged at our hourly rate.
ii) All videos include ONE round of revisions. Additional revisions or amend requests after delivery of the second/final draft will be charged as an extra (£95 flat render/upload fee plus the amount of work to make the changes at the hourly rate – for typos etc. this is usually negligible). For animated videos / animated sequences, included amends are limited to anything that does NOT require new a) sprites/objects b) camera angles / shots. If these amends are required they will be charged at the hourly rate.
Iii) All videos are for ONE version (languages, branding etc.) – If additional versions are required these will be charged as additional extras, starting at a flat fee of £125 per additional version, plus the amount of time needed to create the new version, charged at the hourly rate (for simple intro/outro slide changes this is usually negligible, for others prices will be agreed before moving forward).
iv) Advance payments - a 50% advance will be invoiced to be paid and cleared no later than 3 business days before the first scheduled day of filming, or the shoot may be cancelled. At the client’s request, advances can be split into 25% upfront, 25% after filming is completed (before editing begins), and 50% after the editing is completed and final draft is approved. All video drafts will be delivered with a watermark saying ‘not authorised for use’ - when the final invoice is paid the video will be delivered with the watermark removed.
v) Charges and timing - when using our I-review service the loglist should be returned within 2 weeks otherwise a £5/day charge will be incurred until the loglist is received. If responses in communication are delayed while a project is ongoing other charges may be incurred. If advance project payments have been made, these are non-refundable if more than 2 years passed since the payment was made without the project moving forward.
* Our 25% Cheaper Guarantee
i) We offer a guarantee that we can beat any quote given by any corporate video production company in England by 25% or more for the same job type, video length, filming time, graphics requirements and all video-related requirements, if matched exactly.
ii) Any discrepencies given in the briefs to either production companies render the offer void.
iii) The company whose quote we are aiming to beat must have a) Registered offices b) 3 or more employees c) been open for business for more than 2 years d) be offering their services at their full, rather than discounted, rate.
iv) Any quotes estimated in the quote generator and the 25% Cheaper Guarantee are not legally binding, or a contract of any kind whatsoever.
† Our discount-price videos terms and conditions
i) The multiple discount applies to PRE-ORDERED videos only, this means payment must be sent / processed upfront, before any filming commences.
ii) There is a time limit of 3 months to get the videos filmed from the date payment is received, after this time partial refunds may be negotiated depending on how much work has been done and the reasons why the videos were never filmed. We will deal with these situations how we would with all other aspects of the business, with understanding and flexibility, but hopefully this time limit will incentivise speedy production of the videos, as that’s the way we like to work. This clause exists from past experience to protect ourselves, not to try and harm clients.
ii) Multiple video discounts require a level of ‘consistency of format’ to qualify between all previously discounted videos, meaning, the value of any video in the discount chain must not exceed more than 150% of the value of the first video in the discount chain. E.g. Video 1 is a low-level infographic video for £995, as are videos 2-4, but for video 5 the client requests additional features, for example motion graphics, new music, new voiceovers, new features, etc., which bring the total cost of video 5 before discount to OVER £1,492.50, the discount will not apply and a separate invoice will be sent to cover the difference between the pre-paid amount for video 5 and the full price amount. We believe this 150% leeway is a fair system designed to protect us from intentional manipulation of our discount system while still being reasonable and flexible. We will do our best to avoid disappointment and offer solutions if a video in the discount chain exceeds 150% of the total value of the first video in the chain.
*Our monthly discounts
i) Monthly discounts only apply to jobs with a value exceeding £1,250
ii) Discounts apply to new customers only
iii) 50% advance payments must be made before all filming commences on discounted jobs, regardless of customer type.
iv) Discounts cannot be applied after the job and quote has been approved and greenlit.
* 50% Retainers
i) 50% Retainers should be paid by client for all new work 14 days before filming commences or risk project cancellation by Platinum Media.
ii) Client project cancellation - if the client decides to cancel the project after the retainer has been paid, even before principal filming or work has commenced, only half of the retainer is eligible to be refunded, to cover project management, communications and booking fees.
iii) Cancellation without adequate notice - if a camera operator arrives onsite to film a scheduled appointment and the client has not given adequate notice of the cancellation, or due to unexpected circumstances the client has to cancel, the minimum callout fee of £200 plus expenses (e.g. mileage) is charged, which can be offset against the retainer if this has already been paid.
